ONE A DAY
(1/1/14)


the concept
seems simple
enough

get something
down

every day

whether I feel
like it
or not

the effort
is just
a matter
of will
after all

I have
tried before
but came up
a couple
of weeks
and a day
short

some days
there is simply
nothing there

the trick is
to write about
that emptiness
as well

possibly
those nothings
may mean more
than any something
that I can
experience

remembering
that
is the difficulty

this impression
is already
one of those vacancies
on the very
first day
of the year

December 31st
will never
get here
